Tobin/Progress vintage Tree of Life Quilt Kit – telling the difference between a true vintage kit and the currently manufactured modern kit

In stock again!!! The lovely vintage quilt kit on the left below is on it’s way to me and I am immediately offering it for sale for those of you who want a rare and lovely vintage kit. It will not last long and is priced at $225 USD plus $25 USD shipping

Some people have been asking how one determines whether or not the kit is 100% cotton or is made of the less desirable 50%/50% poly/cotton.

Here’s how:

Enlarge both pictures above to read the descriptive material on the package – the one on the left is the vintage Progress/Tobin Tree of Life Quilt Kit which I have for sale – this quilt kit is 100% cotton and has been out of print for thirty years or more. The picture on the right is of a technically vintage but still in production quilt kit which superceded the 100% cotton one and is made of a blend of 50/50% polyester/cotton. This quilt kit, though technically vintage is less desirable among collectors than the earlier, out of print version.

Hope that clarifies matters for you – just a note> I am too careful of my hard earned reputation to ever sell a poly/cotton blend quilt kit, so rest assured you will get the very best of vintage quilt kits through me.
